(“NuRAN Wireless” or the “Company”) (CSE: NUR) (CNSX:NUR.CN) (OTC: NRRWF) (FSE: 1RN), announces its plans to consolidate all of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares (the “Shares”) on the basis of twenty-five (25) to one (1) (the “Consolidation”). The Consolidation was approved by the resolution of the board of directors of the Company in accordance with the articles of the Company.
The record date for the Consolidation is October 21, 2020 and the Company expects to begin trading its common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange on a post-Consolidation basis under its existing name and ticker symbol. The new CUSIP and ISIN for the Shares is 24276X203 and CA24276X2032, respectively.
Prior to the Consolidation, the Company had 178,077,913 pre-consolidation Shares issued and outstanding. Following the Consolidation, the Company will have approximately 7,123,117 post-consolidation Shares issued and outstanding. Any resulting fractional share entitlements remaining after the Consolidation that are less than one-half of one (0.5) Share will be cancelled and each fractional Share that is at least one half of one (0.5) Share will be changed to one (1) whole Share.
A letter of transmittal will be mailed to registered shareholders providing instructions to surrender the certificates evidencing the pre-consolidation Shares held in exchange for replacement certificates or Direct Registration Advice representing the number of post-consolidation Shares to which they are entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Until surrendered, each certificate representing pre-consolidation Shares will be deemed for all purposes to represent the number of whole post-consolidation Shares to which the holder thereof is entitled as a result of the Consolidation. Shareholders who hold their pre-consolidation Shares in brokerage accounts or in “street name” are not required to take any action to surrender or exchange the pre-consolidation Shares so held.
